Law of Creation

Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb: “I am the Lord, who made all things, who alone stretched out the heavens, who by myself spread out the earth.” (Isaiah 44:24)

For from him and through him and to him are all things. (Romans 11:36)

For Contemplation

God creates out of God’s being; therefore everything exists in the oneness of God. Since all existence resides in God, everything material and spiritual is preserved in God. The law of thermodynamics that states the total amount of energy in a system remains constant over time is a physical example of this spiritual truth. All spiritual truths have a corresponding truth in the physical realm. In that system, energy can change form and manifest in different ways. So too, God can express God’s being and consciousness in an infinite number of ways. We have the ability to express ourselves and manifest our intention in many ways. When we choose love and bear witness to truth, our intention is a creative power that aligns itself with the universal laws of God. As we grow spiritually we grow into the role of co-creator with God. We can align our creative ability with God or against God. We choose according to our will and intention with everything we think, say, and do.

Prayer

God of power and light, you have entrusted us with free will and with the power to change and form the world we live in. Guide us and protect us as we learn to wield this power for the highest good of all creation. May we be good stewards of all the resources entrusted to our care. Help us learn the ways of your law with understanding. We seek the expression of this creative power in unselfish ways that lift up every human being into the radiance of your love. We pray in the name of Jesus who revealed to us the power of our true relationship to you, God of all creation. Amen.
